McMINNVILLE COLLEGE McMINNVILLE, OREGON HNNUHL CHTRLOGUE 1894=5 PRINTED FOR THE COLLEGE. . . . McMlNNVILLE COLLEGE . . DOES IT PAY TO ESTABLISH AND BUILD UP COLLEGES? "Planting colleges and filling them with studious young men and women is planting seed corn for the world." — Adoniram Judson. A college that makes a "glorious union of the highest learning with the deepest piety, is a light to lighten the nations and the glory of our Israel." — George W. Baton. Is a College Education Helpful to success in Business Life? "My own class in Harvard College numbered eighty-nine at gradu- ation. Eleven of that number, or one-eighth of the whole, have at- tained remarkable success in business. * * * In eastern Massachusetts graduates of Harvard get greatly more than their numer- ical proportion of the best places in banking, insurance, transportation and manufacturing. * * I speak from no little personal obser- vation when I say that there is no more striking general fact about the graduates of Harvard during the past fifty years than their eminent success in business. From one-fifth to one-third of the members of the successive graduating classes ultimately go into business. The same is probably true of many another American college." — President Elliott of Harvard University. Will it Pay to Send the Girls to College? "Hardly a week passes that fathers and mothers and teachers do not ask me whether it will pay to send some bright, ambitious girl to college. There is but one answer: If civilization pays, if education is not a mistake, if hearts and brains and souls aie more than the dress they wear, then, by every interest dear to a Christian republic, by all the hope we have of building finer characters than former generations have produced, give the girls the widest and the highest and the deep- est education we have dreamed of, and then regret that it is not better, broader and deeper. The civilization of the Anglo-Saxon race in Amer- ica depends upon the education physical, mental, moral and social of the women for the next fifty years." — Alice Freeman Palmer. ...

COLLEGE PREPARATORY COURSE Many students desiring the advantages of the college are not far enough advanced to enter the regular college classes. For the benefit of such students, a College Preparatory course of two years is offered. Some of the studies of this course are common school studies. It is confidently believed, however, that many students would save a full year of valuable time by entering this course as soon as they are fitted to do so. The decided majority of students ought to be ready to enter college at least a year earlier than they do enter. The trouble is that they have spent three years in doing work that they ought easily to have done in two. The average student who has had good advantages ought to be able to enter this two years course at the age of fourteen, then two years later enter the college course and graduate from it at twenty. Recognizing the importance of a thorough preparation as essential to the highest success in college, no pains will be spared to make this preparatory course one of the highest value.

McMINNVILLE COLLEGE... 11 THE COURSES OF STUDY DESCRIBED The courses of study offered in the Literary department are the Classical, the Scientific, the Normal, the Literary and the Business courses. They are given in full on the preceding pages. Attention is called to the fact that the principle of ELECTIVE STUDIES is here offered in its best form — a choice between courses of study. These courses have been marked out with great care and are believed to be fully equal, in the ground they cover, to similar courses in the very best schools of the United States. McMinnville college does not claim to be a university; it is a college, and here offers choice courses of study in those subjects that legitimately belong to the college. The aim of the college is to give such discipline of the mental powers as is essential to the highest success in business life, and at the same time to give a fair mastery of the branches that are here taught. To-day hundreds who expect to enter business life, as well as those who are looking toward the professions, are anxious to secure the broadest culture and the most thorough mental training. A brief description of the courses of study is here presented: The Classical Course gives a prominent place to Greek, Latin and Mathematics. A thorough study of mathematics is universally recognized as of the highest value. The Latin and Greek languages are unsurpassed store houses of intellectual strength. This course also furnishes opportunity for the study of French, German, Literature, History, Psychology and Philosophy. The Scientific Course retains the mathematics and Latin of the Classical course, but offers special advantages in the sciences and the modern languages. Chemistry, Botany, Physics, Zoology, Geology and Astronomy are given a prominent place during the last three years of the course. Text-books are used, but many experiments are given and much work done outside of the text-book. It is believed that this course as now offered is deserving of the heartiest patronage. t2 ... McMLMNVILLE COLLEGE... The Normal Course differs from the Scientific in that professional studies hold a prominent place in the senior year. The aim is to give both mental discipline and professional knowledge, together with such a mastery of the branches here studied as will fit the graduate for the highest positions in public school work. The second and third-rate positions in the public schools are overcrowded, but there is a strong and increasing demand for thoroughly equipped teachers. The course here offered is not a short and easy one. It will require five years of hard work to complete it. Teachers who expect to secure and hold prominent and well-paid positions in the public school, cannot afford to take a shorter course than this. Those completing either the Classical, Scientific, or the Normal course will be eligible to the state diploma as provided for by the legislature of 1891. The Literary Course is a carefully prepared course that can be completed in three years, and is offered to those who are not able to remain in school a longer time. It gives a fair amount of Latin and mathematics, and furnishes a considerable knowledge of the sciences and German. The Business Course offers a superior business education. "What- ever may be your choice of business pursuit, it should be remembered that the better you are qualified for it, the more likely you will be to succeed in it. It is a fact which cannot have escaped the notice of anyone who has given the matter any thought, that those who are the best educated for their business calling (other things being equal) invariably take the highest positions." These sentences from the pen of a prominent business man deserve the careful study of the youth of to-day. It is beyond dispute that a thorough business education is a prerequisite to eminent success in business life. Such an education can be obtained only by close application and persistent study; and it cannot be obtained in a few short months. The course here offered is none too thorough for those to master who expect to take prominent positions in business life. ... McMINNVlLLE COLLEGE... 13 ADMISSION To enter the college classes in the Classical, Scientific, Normal or Literary course, students will be required to pass a satisfactory examina- tion in the studies of the College Preparatory course found on page 10, or to furnish satisfactory evidence that they have fairl}- mastered these branches. Especial attention is called to the fact that the mastery of the common branches lies at the basis of all successful work in the studies pursued in the college course. Students deficient in reading, spelling, arithmetic, and English grammar would be especially crippled in higher branches, if allowed to enter upon them. To students who are deficient in any of the common branches, the College Preparatory course offers superior advantages under teachers of ability and wide experience. SPECIAL STUDIES Many students are so situated that they cannot see their way to take a regular course. To such students the best of advantages are offered to take such studies as they are fitted to pursue. Such students will have just as thorough instruction and just as good opportunities in every respect as those taking a regular course. Attention, however, is called to the fact that as a rule students receive more benefit by entering upon a regular course, even if they cannot see their way to complete that course. DEGREES The degree of Bachelor of Science is conferred upon those who complete the Scientific course; that of Bachelor of Literature, upon those who complete either the Classical or the Normal course, and a certificate of graduation, upon those who complete the Literary, the Business, or the Musical course. 14 ... McMINNVILLE COLLEGE... TRAINING OF TEACHERS The demand for college graduates to fill the best salaried positions in the public schools is increasing year by year. The day is close at hand when thousands of teachers must secure a better preparation for their work, or be crowded out by the better equipped teachers our colleges are educating. The public school is widening its course of study; one branch after another is added; it does not take the eye of a prophet to see that the elements of the various sciences are soon to be taught in the common school. All this means that the successful teacher must have a much more extensive education than most teachers to-day possess. To encourage college graduates to enter public school work, state legislatures are granting them state diplomas; a privilege until recently granted only to Normal schools. McMinnville College in its Normal course offers superior advantages to those who are to make teaching a specialty. That course is a thorough one but none too thorough for those who expect to be eminently successful in public school work. LEGISLATIVE ENACTHENT Be it enacted by the legislative assembly of the State of Oregon, That all persons who shall complete a required course of study and receive a literary degree therefore in any institution of learning of collegiate or university grade, chartered or incorporated under the laws of this state, and shall have passed such examination thereon as may be approved by the State Board of Education, shall be entitled to receive a State Diploma, as is now authorized by law, and after six years of successful teaching in the State of Oregon, shall be entitled to the State Life Diploma, as now provided by law, when they shall have paid the required fee for said diploma. ... McMlNNVILLE COLLEGE. .. IS THE MUSICAL DEPARTMENT Recognizing that the fine arts are an important element in mental culture, and that attainments in instrumental and vocal music are of great practical value to young men and women , especial effort has been put forth, with marked success, to make the musical department of this college one of the best in the state. While the aim has been to secure the most efficient teaching that can be secured, it has also been the desire of the institution to make the tuition as low as possible, in order that those of limited means may avail themselves of the advantages that are offered. Superior instruction in vocal music in classes is offered at merely a nominal tuition. The value of the voice culture that is thus secured cannot be overestimated. Its value is seen not only in singing but in public speaking as well. COURSE OF STUDY VOCAL CULTURE Grades One and Two Formation of tones, focus of vibration and respiration; Concone's and Marchesis' studies. Advanced Grade Vaccai's Italian Method; Lablanche's and Abt's studies; ballads and arias from oratorios and operas. 16 ... McMlNNVILLE COLLEGE.

Chopin Nocturnes and Ballades. Concertos by Men- delssohn, Hummel and Beethoven; also concert selections from Men- dlessohn, Weber, Rubenstein and Iyiszt. Harmony. All pupils entering the four years' course in Piano must have a knowledge of the rudiments of music, and must have completed the work of the preparatory department or its equivalent. The course of study in Piano-forte playing is systematically arranged, and pupils who complete the course will be graduated in Music with an appropriate diploma. The time occupied in completing this course will depend upon the ability of the pupil and the proportion of time devoted to Musical study. SIGHT=READING CLASS All pupils, whether they stxidy instrumental or vocal music, should enter the department of sight-reading. The ability to read music at sight lies at the basis of a true musical education. Very few among the thousands who are studying music are able to read even plain hymn tune correctly at sight, consequently labor under great disadvantage. ... McMlNNVILLE COLLEGE... 17 DEPARTMENT OF BIBLE STUDY. The aim of this department is to give the student a helpful know- ledge of the English Bible. The intense study of this book stimulates intellectual development, and fits men for success in any honorable calling of life. This study is especially valuable to young people who are accomplishing year by year a more important work in the eleva- tion of societv. To fit these for this work is certainly an important function of the christian college. The Bible is studied as a book of History, Biography, Literature and Morals. The history of the Jewish people, their contact with other nations, their influence upon their own and later times, and the leading elements of their greatness, receive special attention. As biog" raphy the Bible is a book of thrilling interest. The lives of such men as Abraham, Jacob, Moses, Joshua, Samuel, Nehemiah, David, Daniel, John, Peter, and Paul, deserve the most careful study by young people who are soon to be leaders of society. The elements of character that gave these men success will bring success today, whatever the life calling. As literature, the English Bible is the world's masterpiece. The great English writers studied it profoundly; and the person who is ignorant of it cannot appreciate such writers as Shakespeaie, Milton, Bunyan, Bacon, Byron, Pope, Wordsworth and Tennyson. It con- tains the choicest diction, the most forceful expression of thought, and the most eloquent passages to be found in the English language. Hence its careful and continued study by those who would be masters in the expression of thought, is of the highest value. As a book of morals, the Bible holds a unique place; no book in the literature of the world approaches it in its elevating influence upon the moral life of individuals and of nations. Every wave of successful re- form that has swept over society, abolishing human slavery, restrain- ing cruelty to man and beast, opposing the vice of intemperance, at- tempting the elevation of politics in cities and nations, ennobling the life of the home, and purifying the relation of man to man, has found its source and inspiration in the sacred writings. Hence there is the highest plea for the Bible as a text book in the christian college. In addition to study in these four lines, the senior class may elect, under the supervision of the faculty, further study to the amount of one-fourth of their full work. It is confidently believed that this may be made a full equivalent to the study whose place it may take. 18 ... McMINNVILLE COLLEGE... ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR 1895-6. The most cheering announcement to be made, and one affecting in a marked way the college in all of its departments of work, for the coming year, is that the recent effort to add $20,000 to its funds has been successful. This has been secured in good subscriptions, and a considerable part of it will be paid earty this fall. This places the college upon a much better financial basis, and opens the way for new features that have heretofore been impracticable. The Courses of Study in this catalogue are those to be followed the coming year. Several changes have been made. General History will occupy three terms instead of two, thus giving large opportunity for investigation and work outside of the text book. Chemistry and Physics has each been changed from two to three ' terms. These are taught largely by laboratory practice. The enlarged laboratory facili- ties year by year are provoking increasing enthusiasm in the study of the natural sciences. Much better facilities will be offered in the near future. The course in mathematics has been strengthened by the ad- dition of half a year of Analytical Geometry; and several other minor changes have been made, thus making the courses in some important features better and stronger than heretofore. The establishment of a Department of Bible Study is only carry- ing into effect a long cherished desire. This department will be built up as rapidly as circumstances will justify. At an early day an effort will be made to secure an endowment of at least $10,000, the income of which shall be used exclusively in sustaining this department. Much attention will be given to this study the coming year along the lines suggested on another page. Financial Assistance will be rendered to needy and worthy stu- dents by giving them work on the college campus and elsewhere. Much larger effort than heretofore will also be made to render direct help to students of promise, especially those having the Baptist ministry or McMlNNVILLE COLLEGE... 19 Baptist missionary work in view. The advanced financial condition of the college makes this possible. Henceforth all necessary financial help can be rendered approved students for Baptist ministry or missionary work after they have reached the Sophomore year. Some help may be rendered before that, but certainly deserving students can reach that point by their own efforts, with help in sight from there on through their course. This help must of course come chiefly from the friends of the college, but their increased number and loyalty are the assur- ance that it will come as needed. English Composition and Oratory will receive still more attention the coming year than in previous years. To know how to express thought upon paper clearly, forcibly and elegantly is a great accom- plishment. Perhaps it is a still greater accomplishment to be able to speak effectively before an audience. The Philergian Society in its weekly literary meetings has accomplished a great work along these lines. It seems to become more efficient year by year. The Friday night literary and musical entertainments have also come to be an ex- ceedingly interesting and valuable feature of the college life. In these, as well as in the more direct teaching in composition and ora- tory, these subjects will receive increasing attention the coming year. The Class of '94 Oratorical Prize will stimulate both good writ- ing and good speaking. That class has subscribed a fund, the interest of which will be divided annually into four prizes, excellence in both composition and oratory being taken into account. The first contest will be held Friday night, Dec. 20th, 1895. Members of the Junior and Senior classes may compete. Orations are limited to 900 words each. The prizes for the first contest will be $5.50, $5, $4.50, $4. Each oration is to be upon one of the following subjects: "The Secret of Japanese Success in the Late War;" "The Function of the Scholar in Political Life;" "Elements of Leadership in James A. Garfield;" "The Need of College Graduates in Journalism." Physical Culture and Health Producing Recreation will be much better provided for the coming year than ever before in the history of the college. The old ball ground was given up from necessity. A 20 ... McMINNVILLE COLLEGE... larger and better one has been set apart directly west of the college building. Two fine tennis courts have been made east of the building. A gymnasium will be erected in the early fall, and already provision has been made in part by the students to furnish it with the most ap- proved apparatus. It has long been a pressing need, and will be highly appreciated. A time will be set apart for practice for the girls as well as the boys, with a teacher in charge. Last, But By No Means Least, is the announcement that it has been decided to put bath rooms in the building with hot and cold water. That "cleanliness is next to godliness" may not be scriptural in word- ing, but it certainly does not violate scripture teaching. This ad- vance step has long been desired, but many pressing demands pre- vented. This step will certainly be a source of satisfaction to the old students; even if they cannot receive its benefits. The "old times" were good, but the "times of the now" are much better. These ad- vance steps are certainly an indication that McMinnville College has entered upon a new era of prosperity. Its finances are much in ad- vance of any preceding year; its teachers are well-equipped for their work, with years of successful experience here; the circle of its friends is enlarging rapidly, and they were never so enthusiastic as now; its advantages are improving year by year; the expenses are within the means of all who are really ambitious to get a college education. This institution surely deserves your careful consideration before you de- cide to go elsewhere. McMlNNVlLLE COLLEGE... 21 EXPENSES. Tuition is$ii a term.

Each student is advised to join the Missionary society, which costs seventy-five cents a year. Each student is also advised to take either elocution or music lessons. This extra expense is money well spent. Counting in these extra expenses, and the entire cost of a year need not exceed $200. At these figures, any young man or woman of good health ought not to hesitate a single minute about obtaining a college education. 22 ... McMlNNVILLE COLLEQB... GENERAL INFORMATION. LOCATION. McMmnville College is located just outside the city limits of Mc- Mitniville, Oregon. McMinnville is easily accessible from eveiy part of the North Pacific coast, being situated on the Southern Pacific rail- road, west side division, 50 miles south of Portland. From all points south there is direct connection, by the way of Albany and Corvallis, or by stage from Salem to McCoy, and thence by the Southern Pacific to McMinnville; from all points east and north there is direct connection by way of Portland. ••• BUILDING AND GROUNDS. The College has a campus of 30^ acres, admirably adapted for the purpose and beautiful for situation. Upon this campus there was built in 1882 one of the finest buildings for educational purposes to be found on the Pacific coast. The building is 106 feet in length, 79 in breadth, and four stories in height. The basement storj^ contains accommoda- tions for a boarding department; the second affords a commodious chapel, president's rooms, class rooms, etc.; the third and fourth, reci- tation rooms, library, a number of rooms for students, and Philergian hall. Recently an observatory has been erected and a fine telescope mounted. It is an equatorial; good authority claims it to be the best instrument north of Mt. Hamilton. It has already given a new im- petus to the study of the sciences. DISCIPLINE. Self-government is the ideal at McMinnville College. Students are expected to conform to the usages of good society, and to conduct them- selves as they would in a refined, well-ordered home. Only those who are willing to do so are desired as pupils. No set of rules to cover all cases can be laid down. A high moral sense is necessary to guide a student in a society like this. If a student does not have this, and it cannot be developed in him, his parents will be notified, after a due trial, to remove him from the school. This is not a reform school; young men are expected to give evidence of manhood, and young women of womanhood. ...McMlNNVILLB COLLEGE... 23 TEXT=BOOKS. Only a partial list of text-books is here given: Arithmetic, White and Milne; grammar, Whitney, Reed and Kellogg; algebra, Robinson's elementary, Taylor; geometry, trigonometry, Wentworth; general history, Barnes; rhetoric, Hill; physiology, Hutchinson; physical geog- raphy, Houston; Latin grammar, Harkness; Latin reader, Harper and Burgess; Harkness' Preparatory Course in Latin Prose Authors; Virgil, Harper; Greek grammar, Goodwin; The Beginners' Greek Book, White; Anabasis, Goodwin; physics, Avery; chemistry, Shepard; English literature, for reference, Shaw, Backus and Brown, Welsh, Coppee, Arnold and Cleveland; psychology, Hill; geology, Dana; astronomy, Young; French, Ahn; German, Ahn; zoology, Orton; bot- anv, Bastin; political economy, Laughlin; moral philosophy, Robin- son; Bible study, Steele; bookkeeping, Bryant; school management, Baldwin. THE LIBRARY. The library, has grown steadily, year by year, and is now recognized as one of the best college libraries on the Pacific coast, though many new books are imperatively needed. Valuable additions of nearly ioo volumes have been made the last year. The books have recently been rearranged and classified so as to greatly facilitate their use. We look to the friends of the college for help to make the library still better. We need additions in history, English literature, biography and sci- ence; especially in the Department of Bible Stud}'. THE READING ROOM. A partial list of the papers and magazines in the reading room this year is the following: The Examiner, Standard, Christian Herald, Pacific Baptist, Baptist Teacher, Baptist Union, Epworth Herald, Christian Advocate, Cumberland Presbyterian, Worker, Missionary Magazine, Home Mission Monthly, Education, North American Re- view, Review of Reviews, Missionary Review, Chautauquan, Educa- tional Re view T , School Review, Forum, Atlantic Monthly, Reporter, Telephone, Dayton Herald, Voice, Inter-Ocean, Northwestern Christ- ian Advocate, and Daily Oregonian. Most of these will be in the read- ing room the coming year. Contributions to this room are solicited. 24 ... McMINNVILLE COLLEGE... SOCIETIES. The Philergian Society, composed of young ladies and gentlemen, meets regularly each Saturday evening. The exercises, consisting of singing, essays, debates, recitations, orations, declamations, etc., are of great value to the students. The special feature of the society is its debates upon vital questions of the day. The Missionary Society holds a public meeting once a month. During the present year these meetings have been held the third Sunday afternoon, and have been full of interest. There is also a Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. These hold meetings regularly for the study of the Bible and for religious culture. These meetings have proved to be of great benefit to many students, encourag- ing them in christian work, and fitting them for larger usefulness in after years. AID TO STUDENTS. It is the aim of the college to assist worthy students in every way possible. The chief way at present of rendering financial assistance is by furnishing work. During the present year several young men and women have earned a considerable part of their expenses in this way. The college can help students the coming year considerably by giving them work in improving the campus. To a very limited extent, appeals have been made to friends and churches to assist worthy students. Special efforts will hereafter be put forth to assist such students of ap- proved ability and fitness during the sophomore, junior and senior years. Quite a number of students each year obtain work in the vicin- ity of the college. Several young women each year get opportunity to work for their board in private families. One of the leading purposes of the Oregon Baptist Education Society is to assist young men study- ing for the ministry, and young women fitting themselves for mission- ary service. President Brownson is the Corresponding Secretary of that society. He will be glad to receive applications for help from those who are needy and worthy. ...McMFNNVILLE COLLEGE... 25 ROOMS AND BOARD. The boarding department the last two years has been under the general supervision of the president of the college. The aim is to fur- nish board at approximate cost. The price of table board is guaran- teed not to exceed $2.50 per week. Everything is purchased for cash. Buying in large quantities for cash, better board can be offered at $2.50 a week than a private family could afford to give at the same price. On the third floor of the college building are rooms for a limited number of boys. The president's living rooms are on the first floor. On the same floor are rooms for a limited number of girls. Most of the rooms are unfurnished, except with a stove. Students wishing furnished rooms are requested to notify the president in advance. All of the rooms have high ceilings and large windows, and so are superior for ventila- tion and light. Furnished rooms can be obtained at reasonable price within a few minutes walk of the college. Quite a number of students club together and rent a house and board themselves, thus saving a large part of the expense. REQUIREMENTS. Regular attendance at chapel service, and at recitations, faithful observance of study hours, and payment of all damages to furniture and building. The use of tobacco in the building or on the college grounds, and the visiting of any saloon or billiard hall, are forbidden. In addi- tion to these requirements, students are expected to attend preaching services regularly on the Sabbath at some church. Baptist, Christian, Cumberland Presbyterian, Episcopal and Methodist Episcopal hold regular services. Students are excused from study hours one night each week for the purpose of attending the regular prayer service of some church, if they so desire. EXAMINATIONS Are held from time to time, occupying the time of the regular rec- itation. As a rule examinations are also held at the close of each term; sometimes at the close of a study only, when it comes near the end of a term. All recitations and examinations are marked on a scale of 100 and an average of 80 is required before passing from one class to an- other. An accurate record of the standing of each student is preserved, both of recitations and examinations. Reports will be sent to parents or guardians on application. 26 ... McMINNVILLE COLLEGE... URGENT NEEDS. A growing institution has needs that become very urgent. Pro- vision has been made to meet some of the needs that were pressing a a year ago, but others almost equally imperative must soon be pro- vided for. The most urgent are the following: I. AN ENDOWMENT FUND OF TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF BIBLE STUDY. A beginning on this ought to be made the coming year. Friends of the college have advo- cated for several years the establishment of this department. The op- portunity has come for them to show their interest by their gifts. Why not have this department endowed by a multitude of small givers? II. Ten scholarships of five hundred dollars each. The college can no longer afford to let promising students leave school with their course only half completed, when the interest on a five hundred dollar scholarship would enable them to graduate. Let us have several of these scholarships; and later they can be increased in amount if found desirable. Money invested in this way in young men and women of promise will pay more than ten per cent, interest to the investor. Try it. III. Enlarged laboratory facilities and more apparatus. The development of the scientific department has been one of the most encouraging features in the growth of the college. Much further development cannot be made without larger accommodations and more apparatus. The importance of this line of work in the college of to-day can hardly be over estimated. Are there not friends who will as spec- ial gifts provide the few hundred dollars just now urgently needed? IV. Another building. Year by year this need becomes more urgent. The dormitory facilities are very limited; the department of natural science has outgrown the best accommodations that can now be offered; the need of at least two large recitation rooms is very pressing: the only solution seems to be another building. It need not be very large nor very expensive, but it ought to be begun this fall and com- pleted the coming year. The best interests of the college make a loud call for this undertaking. McMINNVILLE COLLEGE... 27 HAVE YOU MADE A WILL? If so, did you remember McMinnville College? If you did not, will you not reconsider and ask the Lord if it will not be to his glory for you to change that will? If you have not made a will and are going to do so, will you not make McMinnville College one of your heirs? Do not write your own will. Be sure that the correct legal name of the in- stitution is used. The following form of a bequest is suggested: "I give, devise and bequeath to THE TRUSTEES OF THE BAPTIST COLLEGE AT M'MINNVILLE, Oregon, to be invested by them, the sum of * * * The interest on this fund may be used as they decide, either to meet the current expenses or to assist deserving and approved students." A WORD TO PARENTS. If you cannot give your sons and daughters anything else, give them a good education. It may call for self-denial and sacrifice on your part, but you can well afford to make it. Try and keep them in school every school day in the year. Then remember that it is of the utmost importance in what school you educate your sons and daughters. You cannot afford to educate them in any other than a Christian school. If you are a Baptist you cannot afford to educate them in any other than a Baptist school. If you are a Baptist in Oregon, why not edu- cate them in McMinnville College? SPECIAL REQUEST. You who receive this catalogue will receive it because you are be- lieved to be deeply interested in higher education. Your help in the building up of McMinnville College is earnestly solicited. There are many ways in which you can do so. You can speak a good word for the college. You can place this catalogue in the hands of persons whose thoughts and hearts may be turned to the college. You can send the president names of persons who might be favorably influenced by a catalogue or a personal letter from him. You can remember this school in your prayers; you can remember it in your will. The college looks to you for help in one or all of these various ways. 28 ... McMINNVILLE COLLEGE..

An attempt is here made to give the names and year of graduation of students completing either an academic or collegiate course of study since 1884. Information as to students completing any course of study before that date is desired. The college conferred its first degree in that year. In 1893, radical changes in the courses of study were author- ized by the trustees, and graduation from the academic department was discontinued. Those graduating from the collegiate department are designated by the degrees they received at graduation. 1884 John H. Smith A. B. E . F. Clark Emma Matthews C.J. Powell B. F. Rhodes 1885 H. Lt.
